    Sorry if this is common knowledge, but does anyone know the official UT 2004 Mac release date?
    Amazon said March 31st, now says "Usually ships within 1 to 2 weeks".
    I couldnt find a release date on Macsoft, and the Apple Store has 2 to 3 weeks listed.

    Any word on when or if an update to the demo will be?

    the whole demo thing was just a trick/tease to make us all wish we can PCs when the real one comes out (came out).

    oh wait.

    To further confirm that it's shipping today, my copy is in the mail (and I'm tracking it now via UPS.com).

    I saw the minimum specs: 933Mhz, 6 gig HD, 64Vid AGP ram, 256RAM, DVD, OSX 10.2.8...

    Does anyone know what the recommended is for decent performance?

    Yes, try the demo. It will only whet your appetite but is well worth it if you find out after the fact your computer just doesn't cut it. I used a 1? Ghz 17" Powerbook, 1 Gig of Ram default specs and had no problems. Except the Powerbook isn't mine :( All in good time. Can't wait to try the full version.

    Read the thread below. I posted a couple of times there with some basic results on how UT2004 demo performs on my Comp. (specs in a signature).

    Well I am awaiting a G5PB (and pessimistic rumors now say January 2005) hopefully due in June or August...hopefully that should handle it.

    I sorta hope the new 17" and maybe 15" has a G5 and 4 slots for ram so I can get a decent amount cheaply, plus a 128 graphics card option...

    Graphics Cards

    I have to say the only thing that tempts me to PCs is that, if you're careful when you buy, you can get a box that you can keep throwing new vid cards in for years. I hope Apple realise that people want to be able to buy a machine that isn't top of the line but has the ability to upgrade the video card further than 64MB, which really doesn't cut it for a lot of new stuff. If this were possible, maybe more people would use macs for games, and then more games might be developed for mac.
